"John, I actually have your column on the Crab Walk from Flatpick Magazine. I sent the post after I went through it. It is a finger burner but a great exercise. I'm going to try it on my archtop and pretend it's easier. Thanks, Eric"

"Not sure. I've been trying to come up with a style for a newly ordered 000 12 fret from Blazer and Henkes. This may be a bit too pearly for me but it is sure pretty."

Eric:

How/why did you decide on Week 3? We are really going to miss you at Week One!

Why don't you make your way out to Wayne's festival this year. Third Saturday in June, rain or shine!

Yes, Eric the PE guitar is now officially the EW guitar. Congratulations

Howdy, Eric, Well, you can either be cool, like you. Or look cool, like me! :-) yes, Week 3 this year. Bob and I have to work the Canmore folk festival every year, so this dictates which week we have avail for PSGW. This year, it is week 3. For some unknown reason, is why Ed and Roy seem to want to share this week. You would think that with this advance knowledge, they would pick another week. :-)

Yep, I'll be there week 1.

Hi Eric,
Finally (!) I am getting around to responding to your comment re: the Crab Walk.
I learned this exercise from investigating the playing technique of the great Oregon guitarist, Ralph Towner. It was also the subject of one of my columns back in the Sept/Oct issue of 2002! I have an mp3 of the audio lesson that I would be happy to email to you. Just contact me at info@johncarlini.com and I'll send it. Perhaps you can find the column in the FPG archives. It is a great exercise and develops the ability to sustain notes while other notes are moving...meant to be played v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. Sorry to take so long to respond.
Best Wishes,
John Carlini

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"

"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
